Better support for song numbers?
#1
In our band most sheets are numbered. So I'm starting the sheet's name with its number for sorting purposes.
That has the effect that of my ~500 sheets, in the alphabetical selection screen, ~450 are crammed into the # section and the remaining ~50 (those that did not yet get a number or temporarily lost it) can be found sorted with their first letter, and that section easily jumped to by selecting the respective letter. Additionally that means the alphabetic sorting is lost for anything that has a number - in case I want to access it via its name. I can still find it via the filter, but that's clumsier and also creates the additional fuzz of working around the keyboard problem with a Pad connected.

A quick fix would be to add numbers to the jump points (i.e. 0-9 instead of #) which would at least ameliorate the first problem a slightly. (Most of our stuff is numbered 1xx - 2xx, so it would only help some)

If I could envision an ideal solution, I would:
- add an additional sheet number column
- add an import toggle to read sheet number and sheet name separately from file name (via naming convention)
- allow to toggle jump points between alphabetic (sorted by sheet name) or numeric (sorted by sheet number)
--- step size for numeric could be fixed (for example 50) or dynamic based on min/max numbers
